Now that Apple fans have gotten over the death of the 3.5mm headphone jack, a new complaint has arisen. There are tons of adapters out there that let you charge your phone and connect wired headphones at the same time, but they always disable any volume and playback controls that might be on the cable connected to your headphones. Good news: Amazon makes its own adapter that checks all the boxes, and it’s discounted right now. Check out the AmazonBasics Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Audio Adapter with Remote — you’ll be glad you did.

Here are some key details from the product page:

* Remote control for adjusting the volume, managing the playback of music, and picking up or ending calls
